Comedian Kevin Hart has integrated himself as part of the NBA fraternity in the last few years. Whether it’s becoming the center of attention at the All-Star Celebrity Game, or appearing in commercials with LeBron James, Hart has affiliated himself with the best players in the league. He might embarrass people with his humor, but he’s also willing to take a joke once in awhile too.

Chris Paul’s Favorite Gift? An Autographed Photo Of 1990s Star Tiffani Thiessen

Chris Paul (Mark D. Smith, USATODAY)

Los Angeles Clippers All-Star point guard Chris Paul is known for his fiery disposition. Perhaps no player in the NBA is more hyper-competitive than Paul, whose theatrical antics on the floor often make him the subject of heated debate among league followers. But CP3′s off-court persona is far more measured, as his most cherished birthday gift clearly shows. Read More »

Kevin Durant Avoids Infamy & Becomes A Twitter Meme

Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook

Throughout Game 5 between the Thunder and Clippers we were preparing for the inevitable Wednesday columns excoriating Kevin Durant‘s 2014 NBA MVP tally and demanding a recall. KD started the most important game of the season shooting 3-for-17 from the field in the first 45 minutes, and no matter what he did, he couldn’t find the bottom of the nylon. Then KD scored 10 of his 27 in the last three minutes, the talking heads turned to crucifying Chris Paul and KD’s sit-down during Russell Westbrook‘s go-ahead free throw’s became a Twitter meme. Take a breath. Read More »

Hopefully no one turned off the OKC/Clippers game last night. I nearly did. Sent a text to my boys saying the series was over. Had my hand on the remote. Channel guide up. But for some reason, I didn’t act. Thank the basketball gods for that one. If you did miss the finish, here’s your chance to see the final 68 seconds of game time. Up seven with under 50 seconds to play, the Clippers somehow chocked it all away. Read More »

Magic Johnson Gives Russell Westbrook The Ultimate Compliment

Russell Westbrook

With the Western Conference Semifinal between Oklahoma City and the Clippers now tied 2-2 after the Thunder’s shocking collapse yesterday, there are a few numbers that stick out. Fifteen… as in the lead the visiting Thunder gave up in the final half of the final quarter. Eighteen… as in the 18 points scored off the bench by Darren Collison in Game 4, including the game’s final four. 45-43… as in the game’s rebounding totals, the first time all postseason that OKC has been outrebounded. Or how about six? That’s the number of turnovers Chris Paul has had in this series. Six! And CP3 has 47 assists. Read More »

Chris Paul Was Angry His Brother Couldn’t Buy A Court-Side Seat In OKC

Chris Paul

Chris Paul came out blazing last night in Oklahoma City. If the Clippers hadn’t so thoroughly dusted the Thunder, we’re pretty sure CP3 would have gone for the NBA Playoff record for 3-pointers in a game (nobody has more than nine, and Paul had eight in three quarters). Perhaps Paul was just pissed his actual brother didn’t get court-side seats? Read More »

Russell Westbrook, Chris Paul

“Don’t count on that in Game 2,” Chris Paul said with a smile from the podium in the post-game press conference following Game 1. Paul shot 8-for-9 from beyond the 3-point arc and 12-for-14 from the field overall for a game-high 32 points to go with 10 dimes in a Game 1 stomping of the No. 2 seed Thunder, 122-105. Read More »

10 Players That Suffer From Michael Jordan Syndrome

Russell Westbrook

Michael Jordan played in two of the greatest basketball eras in NBA history and left his mark on the game through his will and attempt to win every game he ever played. If you did not know already, MJ has a competitive drive that is not comparable to any human being. I am talking about a guy that made it to the greatest honor of being inducted into the Hall of Fame and still dwelled upon not being able to play. Read More »
